It is with trust that we come to share with you what our Drummondville Volunteers team is experiencing.
The year 2020 is a year of great trials that destabilizes us all. Three of our members have been diagnosed with serious illnesses which, in spite of themselves, keep them away from our meetings. It is with sadness that our facilitator Paulette Chénard finds herself obliged to withdraw from the animation of our meetings since she must take particular care of her health. However, she remains a spiritual support for us to the extent that she is able.
Of course, we stay in touch with each one. These events affect us deeply and inspire us to live a part of the spirituality of the Volunteers, "the present moment" more profoundly.
It was with humility that Jocelyne and I accepted the responsibility of leading the team of Volunteers of God, entrusted to us by Paulette.
Through these events we are invited to let God realize his project of Love by our living the mission of the Volunteers of God: "To live everywhere the Love of Christ in the present moment."
With joy, we renewed our commitment as Volunteers of God this December 8, 2020, at St-Frédéric Basilica in Drummondville all the while respecting government instructions.
We congratulate Francine M. on her first commitment as a Volunteer.
Standing together before the crib, we gave thanks to Mary through moments of interiority and, by praying a decade of the rosary for Aline B. Jacqueline C. and Paulette C. who were absent due to illness.
